R.I.P. Roger Hazell

Lifelong supporter passes away.

26 August 2020

The thoughts of everyone at Wycombe Wanderers are with the friends and family of Roger Hazell, who passed away earlier this month.

Roger lived in Cryers Hill and was a lifelong supporter, a season ticket holder and Trust member. It was a great delight for him to arrange for close friends to have a tour of Adams Park.

He and his late wife, Gill, spent most Saturday afternoons following their team. After she died, Roger continued his support taking his seat in the old stand (because he said he could get nearer to the action).    

Roger and his partner Liz moved together to Aston Clinton in 2012 and Roger travelled each Saturday to all Wycombe's home matches. He often paired up to travel with fellow fans who live nearby.

After a stroke in 2015, Roger was unable to return to Adams Park to watch his beloved team. He continued to follow everything on his iPad and on TV when the matches were screened. The past year has been a great delight for him as he's charted Wycombe's progress and he was able to watch them in the play-off final as they reached the dizzy heights of the Championship. He was overjoyed. 

Roger suffered another stroke on 5 August and died on 13 August in the Florence Nightingale Hospice at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.   

His funeral service will be held on 1 September at 3pm. Numbers are restricted to close family and friends but the service will be streamed and if anyone would like further details of this, they can contact Liz by sending an email in the first instance to media@wwfc.com.

Later, when we're all able to meet in a normal way,  there will be a Memorial Service for Roger in St Michael's & All Angels Church here in Aston Clinton.

Rest in peace, Roger.
